If you think Stone Groove is just about music, youre dead wrong. Held every Tuesday at the Vagabond, its an avant-garde, bohemian, poetic, open-mike, musical mashup where Miamis creatives congregate to express themselves and be inspired by their peers. Rotating artists feature their work every month. Comedians perform. Performance artists lay down monologues. Vagabond owner Carmel Ophir adds, Its more than just an open mike. At Stone Groove, hipsters and artists generate an electric energy as both spectators and performers. Its a platform where artists collaborate and express themselves without prejudice and with a bit of funk. Stone Groove delivers said funk, thanks to host Marcus Blake an eccentric and talented musician and poet and house band 3rd Party. Now in its third year, the spoken-word event injects nu-bohemia into the classic coffeehouse vibe of NYCs Greenwich Village in the 50s and 60s.
